Rock Solid Performer. Outstanding at the Price.
 
HDMI 1.4, 3D Pass Through, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD plus Dolby ProLogic IIz. Not much more you can ask for in terms of features but does it sound any good? Well, yes it does and it is fully configurable too (including speaker-to-listening distance adjustment, speaker size adjustment and independent volume levels for all 5 channels (plus sub). It is true what another user said about the on-screen menu being disabled through HDMI but that shouldn't influence your buying decision. All settings are conf...

Good Value for Basic Receiver
 
After purchasing two Denons I finally got fed up with displays freezing up.Called the manfuacture and got no satisfaction. Decided after seeing all the reviews from other Denon unsatisfied users with the same problem. I decided to purchase a Pioneer. The Pioneer was easy to set up and has more features than the normal user could want. But most of all it sounds awsome. Best Buy returned both Denons w/o any problem. Later found out the Denons have a problem with HDMIs .Apparently they have a HDMI ...

Full Featured Receiver
 
I ordered this for a friend as a replacement for a Panasonic SA-HE70 (which got good reviews a few years ago). He isn't disappointed. He now is set for both 3D and blu-ray HiDef. With his Bose speaker system, he doesn't need much power, but this little receiver seems to have alot of it for the money.This is Pioneer's bottom of the line, but don't let that fool you. It has 3 HDMI 1.4a inputs, decodes Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Audio, and Dolby Pro Logic IIz, is Blue Tooth ready (need adapte...

Great receiver once settings are adjusted
 
Well, let me start by saying that I selected this receiver due to its specs and features being among the best for this price range. Pioneer's reputation for providing solid products was also a factor. With support for the latest audio codecs from Dolby and DTS, as well as HDMI 1.4 support, this receiver is a great buy.Prior to purchase, some of the other reviews that I saw had me afraid that I may be returning this product. However, upon setting up my receiver, I realised that som...

Great for the price
 
Just hooked eveything up this week and was pleasantly surprised. I had been using what was at the time (19 years ago) one of Pioneers top of the line receivers with Dolby Pro Logic surround sound. It still works fine, but I tell you: the sound from this inexpensive receiver blows away the old one. For me, just for the Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound feature playing through my Bose Acoustimass system is just amazing. I will play with it a little further for sound enhancements and see where i...

Great Product for the Money/Super Easy Set Up
 
This receiver has HDMI Inputs for everything and an HDMI Out to TV. Just connect the Blue Ray player, DVD player, Cable Box, DVR etc with HDMI inputs, run an HDMI cable to the TV and connect the speaker wires and you are done. This was far simpler than my previous setup which required a variety of connections.

Decent For HDMI-only, Flawed Otherwise
 
I purchased this product as part of an overhaul of my home theater arrangement, which included a new HDTV, Blu-Ray player, and receiver. I chose the Pioneer product because it offered HDMI switching and current-gen audio format decoding at a very good price. My two previous receivers had been Sony products, which I liked, but I thought Pioneer would be a solid brand.My home theater arrangement includes the following components:-My computer, connected via HDMI for video ...

Great product, when it works
 
I've owned this receiver for over a year now, and I've used it every day. I work in professional audio, so picking up a decent sounding and relatively cheap receiver was a must. I've got a pretty nice set of Kenwood speakers to run all of my audio through -- the only problem was I didn't have enough inputs on my old stereo receiver.

THE BEST receiver for price!!!
 
Needed a budget receiver to compliment a 47" LG in my bedroom. Found it at a local retailer open box and had to buy it. Center Channel went out the 1st nite - darned open box! Returned that and found it on Amazon + free shipping - Hallelujah! Ordered Monday got it Friday - 4 days! Center channel (and all other channels) work fine. Really wanted a good receiver that decoded both Dolby TruHD and DTS-HD Master Audio,100W RMS per CH @ .09 thd, 3D READY!!, 3 HDMI In/1 out, HDMI upconvert, and this ha...
